Rolex Milgauss Green Crystal 116400GV

Rolex Review: Mean Green Milgauss!

Rolex 116400v Milgauss Green Crystal Watch 11

It seems the last watch drop of the season for Rolex this year turned out to be the Anniversary Green Crystal Milgauss (ref: 116400V or 116400GV), an update to the reissue that was introduced in 2007 (ref: 116400).

Scarcity (manufactured or legit) plays a huge role in what makes or breaks an introduction from Rolex and the Milgauss is that, scarce! Try getting your hands on one! Yeah, you might, but you are paying over the full ticket or calling in a favor with someone.

Speaking of which, check out the customer wristshot below of a green crystal Milgauss we sold in our store:

With new Rolex releases, you just never know what is going to be popular and what is going to be overlooked. Rolex also introduced the new Deepsea  Sea-Dweller and it originally flopped like a fish in the market quick. Then all of the sudden everyone wanted one. So what did we learn? Maybe it’s best to wait out the storm on the new intros and see what still has some collectability in the long run.

Rarely do we use the word investment to describe watches, but if you’re looking for something that fits that bill, it’s safe to assume that any watch Rolex releases with the Anniversary Green theme is going to skyrocket in price in years to come.

Milgauss Specs:

Specs-wise, the green crystal Milgauss is the same as the clear crystal model.

40mm diameter made in standard Rolex 904L stainless steel, sitting 13.5mm tall on the wrist. Solid steel Oyster bracelet (ref: 72400) with the Oysterclasp and Easylink system, 20mm lug-width. 

Minimalist no-date/three-hand automatic movement powered by the Rolex caliber 3131. This caliber is COSC and has the Parachrom Bleu hairspring.

If you’re shopping around, here is what an authentic Rolex Milgauss green crystal watch should look like:

Despite fake watch myths, the Milgauss is one of the few Rolexes with text on the caseback.

Box and papers:

This box and papers set is the exact set Rolex sent to the AD who supplied us with the watch to sell online. The watch is a G series with AD signed paperwork dated 2014. Learn all about Rolex serials and dates here.

This piece is rated for a water-resistance of 100m/330ft with “Oyster Swimpruf” on the hangtag. The dial is officially listed on the card as Black Index.

116400Gvs 116400GV:

The style number on the card is 116400V, but 116400GV on the tag. The V and GV model numbers are the same. Also, the V and GV designations are not found stamped on the case, only the paperwork. Since it’s essentially the same as a 116400 clear crystal model, just with a different dial and crystal, Rolex regards them as being the same case reference.

Milgauss Lume:

The green crystal Milgauss actually has two different lume designs. One is a mix of green and blue (Super-LumiNova and Chromalight), and one is all blue (only Chromalight). Unfortunately no orange lume despite the orange markers and lightning bolt seconds hand!

Below is a macro shot of the all blue lume, but see this article about Rolex Chromalight if you want to see the bi-colored lumeshot. Also, we did a LUME WARS! comparison video with a Milgauss VS Omega Planet Ocean XL here. We also put a green crystal Milgauss up against a Datejust II here.
